Lambeau Field is set to welcome fans for Saturday's preseason matchup between the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots. Kickoff will be at 7 p.m.
To recognize 'Play Football Month,' the Packers have invited four teams from Lodi Youth Football in Lodi, Wis., to scrimmage during halftime. In addition, the Packers have donated 3,000 tickets to Saturday's game to youth football teams and Play 60 programs.
'Play Football Month,' a national campaign that takes place throughout the NFL preseason, incorporates youth football scrimmages at NFL stadiums and celebrates the values of the game and recognizes the efforts and contributions of youth and high school football players and coaches across the country.
Fans are reminded that all tickets are mobile-only, as the Packers have transitioned to mobile tickets. Mobile tickets allow for safe, secure ticketing and help prevent fraud, while also allowing for direct and instantaneous communication between the team and the fans coming to each game.
Fans also should note that Lambeau Field and all of its businesses are now cashless, including parking for the first time this year. The new concession stands and other terminals around the stadium will now also feature new tap-to-pay technology, allowing fans to pay up to four times faster than before. Those who do not have credit/debit cards or contactless payment solutions may use a cash-to-card conversion station located in the Atrium.
Fans, particularly those seating in rows 45 and higher, are also encouraged to visit the newly renovated upper concourse on the third level, featuring new and efficient grab-and-go concessions stands along with new LED screens that will keep fans updated on the game action away from their seats.
Packers Perks members attending Saturday's game are invited to visit the Packers Perks Donut House in the Lambeau Field Atrium to receive a free Kwik Trip Glazer donut while supplies last. Starting two hours prior to kickoff on home gamedays this season, Packers Perks members can use the tablets at the Donut House kiosk to input their email; when the machine recognizes the fan's email is associated with a Packers Perks account, a donut will be dispensed. Fans can sign up for the program and begin earning points at packersperks.com.
Fireworks will be set off from the stadium roof one hour prior to kickoff to remind fans to start making their way to the stadium in order to be inside by kickoff. Fans entering all stadium gates will receive magnetic game schedules, compliments of Cenex ®.
